Alex Michel Out

The Bachelor, Season 1

This is the guy who started it all. Here was a guy who went to Harvard. He got an MBA at Stanford. He lived and worked all over the world. And some might say the Dallas connection is tenuous at best—his parents live here, and he brought some girls to town to meet them on the show—but he ended up choosing the blonde with the biggest boobs. Sounds pretty Dallas to us.

Reality Steve’s Take : Who would have thought eight years and 20 seasons later this show would still be around after Michel bumbled his way through an awkward first season? I guess by not picking Trista, he did her a favor by allowing her to meet her future husband Ryan on the very first Bachelorette . This show has really done wonders  for Alex’s love life since. Last time I checked, he's not married—although he did have a spokesperson stint for for a spell.
